Caution Radiation Area is the second album of the jazz fusion band Area and was released in 1974. This is the first album that contains the better known line up, with Ares Tavolazzi replacing Patrick Djivas on bass.
Caution Radiation Area is the second album from the Italian jazz-rock and avant-garde masters Area. The album maintains the drive and inspiration of the debut and expands it with some daring experimentation that brings them close to free jazz and avant-garde. Just like its predecessor, Caution Radiation Area starts with a Middle Eastern tinged outburst of infectious dance rhythms and melodies. After hearing Area's debut album I decided I wanted more, so I checked out their sophomore album, Caution Radiation Area. Obviously, one would expect a natural evolution in the band's sound, but the music on this album is incredibly bizarre throughout. This album is overall a tad more schizophrenic than the debut, and I found it to be quite enjoyable.
Area (6) – Caution Radiation Area. Label: Cramps Records – CRSLP 5102. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Repress. Area goes for a more extreme direction for their second release, Caution: Radiation Area. Demetrio Stratos this time seems to concentrate on singing on just one cut, "Cometa Rossa", the rest features him making his strange vocalizations. Bassist Jan Patrick Djivas had jumped ship to PFM.

However, these experimentations aren't especially well-integrated into the band's music at this stage. The first three tracks are fusion pieces of a style familiar to anyone who's listened to their first album; the second side is where things really get odd.

Area's second album takes its cues from the most serious side of early-'70s British progressive rock, particularly Soft Machine and King Crimson. There's a high-voltage, at times furious energy to the quasi-jazz-rock fusion, with keyboards showing some influence from Miles Davis fusion records, and the guitars wheeling off lines with a busy anxiety.
